TCC testing end of Feb/beginning March?(134 Posts)
Just entering my fertile week & wondering if anyone else is & we can then wait out the dreaded TWW together?
AF due 1st March, most likely be testing from 10dpo ...no matter how hard I try & wait it never seems to work that way 🤦🏼♀️😂
Mine is due either 29th feb or 1st March. Depending. I'm in my fertile week too.
In my fertile week too..ovulation is today according to my opk...first month of using pressed..
TWW is the worse..
I've had long cycles but my last one was 37 days (one before 87) and I'm not due to ovulate for 7 days. I'm currently CD16. However, I'm sure it's in its way 🤞 I temp and my temperature has dropped, boobs are starting to get sore, cm has changed and I've been peeing like a camel today (does anyone else have this?).
Haven't dtd since Saturday and husband working so hoping later tonight or tomorrow and then towards the weekend for luck. It's so tricky with our work schedule. Came off the pill Jan 2019.. 😒
Looking at my OPK tonight (and last month's for comparison) I reckon I'll get my peak tomorrow and ovulate Thursday. I'm very lucky that everything for me is pretty regular and predictable.
That's sounds great @paintfairy good luck!
...Just been reading the SMEP thread and that idea fills me with dread. We won't be doing that 😂
@Mycrazylife85 😂 That's what we are trying! Luckily we did it last night so get a break tonight. Tomorrow will be a massive effort and a late night though.
Oh Lordy! 😳😆 Good luck @paintfairy!!☺️
Husband got back late yesterday so nothing for us last night but booking him in tonight. I am certain positive OPK will happen today. I've taken some to work 🤦🏻♀️ the lengths...
Just worried I've missed it now if we get a positive today and dtd tonight. In case they're slow swimmers 😂 incidentally dh had a sperm analysis last week and should get the results today. Thrilled this cycle is shorter again after such long cycles!
Can I join? I'm in my fertile window too, AF due 27th. How often are you DTD? We did Saturday and yesterday and planning to do tomorrow and Saturday, I just hope that's enough. I don't use OPK's so I'm just going off apps and CM. @paintfairy what CD will you be on Thursday? That's when I am due to ovulate, I'm pretty regular at 28 days so will be CD14 for me
I have a pretty regular cycle of 28 days and according to my app it's the 14th I should ovulate but I did an opk and it said I ovulated on the 11th..we dtd last night, the 8th and 10th..
First time using preseed this time after all the good reviews...fingers crossed
@pineapple2 oh really?! That's interesting. I'm actually due to ovulate Friday not Thursday so I'm the same as you. Thank god we dtd 8th and 11th! Hopefully I'm covered. I will have to use OPKs moving forward if we don't conceive this time.
Positive opk for me today. So fingers crossed!
Whats everyone using to test OPK?
I have the cheap small strips off ebay.. got negative today but looking like I'm due to ovulate on Saturday so will just keep testing.
I have been using Flo & Ovia apps the last fee cycles but trying Natural Cycles also this time & testing BBT daily.. Natural Cycles is predicting ovulation day being the 19th so bit out compared to the other 2.
Just going to DTD every other day now until 21st I think🤞🏼
I have clear blue opk..Got my fixed peak smiley on the 11th. I decided to start testing on the 8th even though app said the 14th so I wouldn't miss ovulation as I'm sure that's what's been happening...so I'm 1dpo...lol
I think I will use the clear blue OPKs if this month isn't our month.
How long has everyone been TTC?
We have been TTC for around 6 months for our first child. I was on the pill for 10 years & stupidly thought as soon as I came off it everything would just 'happen'.
Quickly realised it is really not that easy😔
I am joining you as also due my period at the end of Feb. My cycle varies between 28-35 days so not sure exactly when it will come.
Have been TTC for just over a year so feeling pretty beat by the whole process
I’m in my fertile week now, ovulation happening on Friday according to Flo, but have been away with work since it started so haven’t had a chance to DTD yet. Getting home tomorrow so fingers crossed it’s not too late!
I’ve been testing every morning with the clear blue digital OPK’s, have had flashing smiley faces since Monday (praying each time not to see a static one just yet!)
I’m so sick of weeing on OPK’s, examining cervical mucus, timing sex, taking pre-conception vitamins, using fertility lube etc!! I don’t want to add up how much it has cost me, not to mention when you include all the pregnancy tests I’ve taken when I’ve had the 35 day cycles... Anyway, trying to stay positive, and it feels good to vent!
Fingers crossed for all of us x
@CocoW I used cheap one step last month. This month I've used the clear blue advanced purple OPK, and one step too, out of interest.
With the clear blue you get more warning because it flashes. Mine flashed day 8. The one step had a light line day 10 in the evening. Day 11 is today and I got a static smiley. The one step is also now showing peak.
Hi everyone I will join too. Due AF 28th and this is our 5th month ttc. I had a positive opk on the 10th. I was worried that it was too early? I'm new to this whole thing so not very clued up. My son is 11 so been a very long time since I did any of this x
I've been using the internet cheapies. I'm totally confused as to what is going on. I'm worried I've missed my surge. This morning I had an almost positive OPK first thing, then two totally negative (hardly see the second line) since (after three hour holds). I'm gutted. Maybe I've missed it but all being well we can finally dtd tonight (husband has quite a low sex drive ☹️ which ordinarily is fine 😂). I'm hoping I haven't missed it and my body is gearing up for it but I'm totally fed up and feeling really rubbish. Husband is trying to get his SA results from the doctors and my appointment for my doctor next week (to be referred) has been changed as my doctor... has gone off to have her baby.
I'd like a large glass of wine now and a cry. I'm not going to as I'm not drinking In the hope that'll help. It could be years of not drinking though...
@uisage heres a thread I started for this month🤞🏼
Haha, I had a look last night and missed it 🙈. I am also due 1st March, trying to muster the energy to DTD tonight as I'm just entering my fertile window.
Hi all can I join I’m on another thread but my cycles way behind everyone.i Need some company in TWW. I got peak ovulation this morning so predicted to ovulate tomorrow on Valentine’s Day. So hoping that brings me some luck. Been TTC for last 6 months
I find the best ovulation strips as the Femometer ones I had others but way too sensitive these only give me a positive once in the month which is accurate for me
Hi can I join as well? I got my positive opk yesterday on my CD19, due AF 25th feb (I only seem to be getting 10-12 days PO before it shows up🙄).
@CocoW exact same as you, pill for 10 years and been trying since Sept 19. I also thought it would happen straight away!
This may sound a silly question, so ovulation happens the day after a positive OPK?
@Mycrazylife85 my OPKs were getting darker over the weekend (but not quite positive), then suddenly on Monday and Tuesday morning were really faint, then by Tuesday tea time / bedtime darker again and then positive yesterday all day. This morning negative again. So keep testing just incase!
Good luck to everyone 💗
